Community Webs, the Internet Archive’s community history web archiving program, is welcoming over 60 new members from across the US, Canada and internationally. This new cohort is the first expansion of the Community Webs program outside of the United States and we are thrilled to be supporting the development of community-based web collections on an international scale. 

Community Webs advances the capacity for cultural heritage organizations to collaborate with their communities to build archives of web-published primary sources documenting local history and voices typically underrepresented in both traditional and web archives. The program achieves this mission by providing its members with free access to the Archive-It web archiving service, technical support, and training in topics such as web archiving, community outreach, and digital preservation. The program also offers resources to support a local history web archiving community of practice and to facilitate scholarly research.

Congratulations to our newest members in the program! For more information and to see a full list of our new participants, see our post on the Internet Archive blog.
